Windows 7: Mouse cursor disappear & Task Manager problem

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x64 OEM Version 6.1.7600
Mouse cursor disappear & Task Manager problem

Hi all,

There, I have this issue, that I would like to share with you.
It is concerning the mouse behavior under some applications on W7.
Actually, I am using Autodesk AutoCad Architecture 2010 x64 and few days ago I experienced strange mouse behavior. When I am not moving mouse, the cursor disappear, and when I move the mouse it come up again. I was searching for problem, but no luck. Then once, I noticed that cursor is not disappearing and I realized why. It seams that it have some strange collision issue with task manager. Under Task Manager there is an option under View > Update Speed > High, Normal, Low, Paused. When it is set to High or Normal, this mouse cursor issue happens and when it is set to low or paused it doesn't.

Strange, yea, I guess it have something to do with CPU idle status or similar.

Well, I solved that mater, but one day, in my Opera 10 browser, same thing happened, mouse just disappear after few milliseconds.
This is something I can't solve buy tweaking Task Manager, or any other way for now.

Any similar experience ??

Please share, I think it will be useful for others.
